5 years seems like a long time ago but it's really not. Superstorm Sandy devastated Ortley Beach beyond belief. So much progress has been made but not without heartache and struggles for most.

We are so happy to see the revitalization and wish each home in Ortley Beach was rebuilt and everyone was "home". We can't wait to see this day. #ortleystrong #strongerthanthestorm #sandy #stts

This morning in Ortley

Report from Toms River Township:

Township beaches fared well from Hurricane Jose during this morning's high tide cycle, with waves barely reaching the dunes. We have two more high tide cycles to go through tonight and tomorrow morning, that we will be keeping a close eye on.
The latest briefing from the National Weather Service:
Coastal Flooding: Widespread roadway flooding possible....
Along the Atlantic Coast, Delaware Bay, Raritan Bay, and associated back bays. Likely with the high tide cycles through Wednesday. The most significant threat for moderate coastal flooding is expected with tonight’s high tide.
Wind: Nuisance to minor tree and power line damage possible.
Coastal locations through tonight.
High Surf: Moderate to high rip current risk, beach erosion, and dangerous high wave heights for marine navigation.
Along the coastal waters of New Jersey and Delaware through at least Wednesday.
